Abs are made in the kitchen....

Posted Jun 14 2012 2:33am
Variation. Muscle confusion.

Keep your body guessing & you will see changes.

When I began distance running , I didn't vary my speed much, just my mileage. You know what? My body figured it out and stayed the same.

I learned to work smarter and incorporate HIIT into my running  and strength training  workouts.

By continually mixing up my workouts, eating whole foods (more frequently-still working on this thanks to this girl's reminders), and using specific supplements , I'm making changes.

Making it routine: morning ProSculpt

And, I don't get bored!  I rarely do the same order of exercises or running intervals.

Yes, I tend to default to plank row to frog jumps  

Or,  cross-back lunges with a knee tuck

Because both moves incorporate so many muscles, they are very efficient. However, I usually change the time , number of sets, or what exercises surround them.

I frequently like to combine my two loves, running & crossfit .

Out of the 'Box'  WOD
Run 800m 10 push-ups 20 air squats 30 full sit-ups [Repeat 6 times]
Breaking up the 3 miles allows me to run harder. Additionally, I get the added benefit of strength training, further boosting my metabolism for 24 hours post-WOD.

I'm gearing up for The CrossFit Games July 13-15th in Carson, CA, both mentally and physically.

I kind of feel like I need a six-pack to even spectate!

Have you seen those athletes?!

Time to get focused in the kitchen and the gym (or box ); I have some work to do!

I'll be live tweeting during The Games , so follow #CrossFitGNC for updates!

What remains routine for you in the summer?

What changes (if any) do you make?
